I can’t hear anything over the sound of my rapily beating heart *insert melodramatic music and excessive swooning*… it’s a new collection… and it’s coming very soon!
Do you care what I think? Probably not… but I’m a sharer…
Burn It Blue Duo Cream Eyeshadow – Iridescent ocean blue / turquoise
I’m not crazy for NARS Cream Eyeshadows… they absolutely HAVE to be set with an additional shadow ontop to avoid creasing and even then, I only get a maximum of 6 hours wear out of them. But I freaking love these colours…. if it were a powder duo, I would have been all over it like an embarrassing rash.
Coup de Coeur Lip Gloss – Sheer apple-brandy
Apple-Brandy… is that like a red/brown? Hmm… It doesn’t sing to me… but I’m often surprised by NARS Lip Glosses, it’s a swatch job ‘cos I guess it could really take a nude lip to another level.
Versailles Nail Polish – Opalescent, champagne-gold
Sheer? Not Sheer? That is the question… I’m reserving judgement, but it sure looks beautiful in the bottle *swoon*
Love Devotion Lipstick – Sheer guava
Looking at the promo image, it’s not for me. It looks coral and bright. Reading the description… I love the sound of it. I adore guava shades which seem to work beautifully on my pale pink skin… the perfect pink/coral combination. Not only that, but I adore my NARS Cruising semi-sheer lipstick from the Spring collection so I’m definitely going to be having a closer look at Love Devotion before writing it off.
Cayenne Cream Eyeshadow – Spicy, deep brown
I’ve already said why I’m not sold on the NARS Cream Eyeshadows, it needs to be a stonking shade for me to bother picking it up… and this… isn’t. It’s reliable and it’s magnificently wearable, but if I’m gonna go to the effort to layer a powder over a cream for a stunning effect… it won’t be for this shade.
Lamu Multiple – Fresh, glazed apricot
I have a love/hate for Multiples… I love their multi-use aspect and I always take my Antibes with me when I’m on holiday but I find them quite hard to work with. “Fresh, glazed apricot” sounds like it may be a bit too warm-toned for me anyway.
Enchanted Cream Blush – Soft-peach
OK, now this I’m on board with – woo woo! *makes train noises*…. I love cream blushes in a pan like this… cream blush + stippling brush = blush heaven. Soft peach? Yes please! I’m insanely excited about this release. Can you tell?
Quite a mixed bag of thoughts then, please excuse what is essentially an internal conversation between me and my makeup buying alter ego spilling out over the keyboard. There’s definitely a few pieces that I want to see in person before passing final judgement… overall, promising!
The NARS Summer Collection will be on counter from the 1st May.
Anything there that you’ll be paying some extra attention?
